Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope all of my readers are able to spend time with those they love the most and enjoy the spirit of the season. 

We had our Thanksgiving meal, yesterday to accommodate everyone's schedules.  I had the honor of hosting our celebration this year and while our group was small, they are definitely our most important people.  Our menu was as typical as they come:

Dressing (not stuffing)
Loaded mashed potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Bourbon Turkey Gravy (from Oakley's Bistro)
Cranberry Chutney (from Oakley's Bistro)
Seven Layer Salad
Deviled Eggs
Pumpkin Pie
Apple Pie

Seven Layer Salad is always a requested side.  Here is my mom's Seven Layer Salad recipe:

Susan's Seven Layer Salad
Layer 1 (bottom layer) - lettuce (any kind, but my mom uses iceburg)
Then layer the following:
Layer 2 - Chopped fine green onions
Layer 3 - Chopped fine/diced celery
Layer 4 - 1 bag of frozen petite peas
Layer 5 - 8 oz bag of fine shredded sharp cheddar
Layer 6 - 1/2 pound diced crispy bacon
Layer 7 - Dressing:
Hellman's Mayo - 2 cups
3 TBSP of sugar
Little salt and pepper
1/4 cup or less of heavy cream

Then on top, just to add a little extra sprinkle a thin layer of cheese and crispy bacon on top. 
Chill and enjoy!
